Service. Action. Connection. Making a Difference for Duvall and Carnation.
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Duvall (and Carnation)! We are a local chapter of the Rotary International service organization, where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. Most proceeds from Rotary Club of Duvall fundraisers go to support local activities (such as books for first graders and high school student scholarships) as well as area nonprofits including the Sno-Valley Senior Center and Empower Youth.
The Rotary Club of Duvall leads several fundraisers throughout the year including the “Duvall has Heart” program and the Beer Gardens during Duvall Days and SummerStage.

Our “4-Way Test”
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.
This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.
